Ahhh...the memories. When eating out was a thing in the early 2020, late 2019s. Back when dining in restaurants was allowed here, I don't think that I ate out that much but I did order at least 1-2 meals per week. My friends and I would have an early morning breakfast gathering for around $2… Continue reading Eating Out VS Cooking at Home
Pushing Through Tough Times…
...because what is the alternative? I'm trying to not let the weight of all that's going on lead to another year of not writing. This is just a hobby but getting my consistency back up in this area will lead (in theory) to building my consistency across other habits I need to get back into.… Continue reading Pushing Through Tough Times…
Books: Are We Reading This Year or Nah?
Short answer: Yes. Longer story... Last year I fell all the way off. My vision board goal was to read 40 books for the year. Pandemic. The previous year I started writing reviews which you can check out by looking at posts in that category. And then in my usual consistently inconsistent ways, I fell… Continue reading Books: Are We Reading This Year or Nah?
Why Representation Matters
These old drafts really seemed to have some decent ideas of mine. Last year... The great Buddy Hield, a Bahamian basketball player in the NBA just recently won a 3-point shoot off competition. In many of his interviews he finds some way to shout-out The Bahamas and every time he does, it brings a smile… Continue reading Why Representation Matters
Monetize the Blog or nah?

First of all...whew chilay! Semester is over and cheers to the end of my 2nd year abroad in Myanmar. I… Continue reading Black People and Hobbies

A Procrastination Brain Dump
I set a goal this week to write one blog post. This is it. I should be studying and completing my online courses. I will. I have until Saturday. I've not written anything for months, so it's like where to begin. Maybe I'll do another post on my summer recap. For now, I rant. We're… Continue reading A Procrastination Brain Dump
Covid-19 and Grieving the Future
As of today, Myanmar has confirmed 8 cases of Covid-19 (coronavirus). I expect those numbers to bloom as time goes on. But this isn't about 'Rona...this post is about me. I'm okay (mostly). I know that family and friends were very concerned with me being here in Asia given everything that's on the news nonstop… Continue reading Covid-19 and Grieving the Future
Arrested Development or Extended Adolescence?
Moving abroad is of course an exciting adventure, learning about a new city, culture, language, adapting work...it feels a little like going off to college. A lot people's college days were filled with endless studying but also parties. But only this time, you have actual money to spend. Living and working abroad for me (right… Continue reading Arrested Development or Extended Adolescence?
